Contaminants contained in the airline condensate (including oil, water, rust and other accumulated debris) can be highly detrimental to production processes, including in-line equipment as well as production batches.
This literature highlights total systems, industrial microwave ovens, infrared preheaters and advanced conveyorized hot air ovens, as well as extruders, cool down equipment, cutters, take away conveyors, pullers, punching and notching in-line equipment, and specialized equipment for metal reinforced extrusions.
But thermal images are distorted by variation in the rate of sheet travel with in-line equipment and by non-linear travel on rotary formers.
While the newer in-line equipment requires less maintenance, the care required is more sophisticated, entailing more than a turn of a bolt or a screw.
Such strategies might include: conducting exploratory excavations for inspection; establishing a periodic hydrostatic testing schedule; inspecting the line with in-line equipment; exposing and measuring defects and then conducting a remedial program; replacing suspect facilities; or configuring the pipeline for a less critical use.
Multi-Layer Plus labels are applied as a single label using manual, semi or fully automatic standard in-line equipment, removing the need for additional machinery investment.
x 15-ft, 1-hp stainless-steel conveyor dryers with unit and hood insulation and low profile to fit together with in-line equipment. Air temperature and volume controlled to maintain pellet quality.
The Line Equipment design, which has proved its reliability and has been adopted by other form-fill seal machinery manufacturers, preserves pack integrity, gives better sealing and reduces material costs, compared with using standard zippers on regular in-line equipment.
These applicator designs work with Supreme Plastics' patented Keyseal zipper technology, which gives speed and reliability of application, reduced material costs and enhanced sealing, compared with using standard zippers on regular in-line equipment. The system can be post-applied to existing equipment.
The devices work with a 7mm Keyseal zipper, made by Supreme Plastics, improving reliability of application, reducing material costs and enhancing sealing, compared with regular in-line equipment. Line Equipment's applicators are available not only on new form-fill-seal models, but also as a module for fitting to existing from-fill-seal systems.
